The Directorate General of Taxation will intensify its investigation on the suspected unpaid taxes by tech behemoth Google, claiming that the company’s tax settlement offer was too small.

The government said that it would continue investigating Google as it has gathered preliminary evidence indicating that the firm has allegedly committed a criminal act.

“Next year, it is not going to be about a tax settlement anymore,” Muhammad Haniv, the head of the Taxation Directorate General’s Jakarta branch, who is also the main investigator in the case, said as reported by kompas.com on Tuesday.

“We have to accelerate the process. We want Google to disclose its financial reports and the tax office will calculate the tax owed,” he said.

He said the consequence of the tax office’s findings would be that Google had to pay taxes owed plus a 150 percent penalty. (win)
